"Good family vacation... not a great couples hotel"
This was my second trip to the Marival. It is a great place for kids 5-10 years of age. I don't think my husband and I would come to this hotel if we were traveling alone without our children but the two bedroom suites are great for our family. The service is excellent in all areas, EXCEPT the pool area needs to be picked up of empty cups on a more regular basis. It seems as though cups are only picked up at the end of the day around the pool and it tends to make the area look dirty. On our previous trip we were only asked once about taking the breakfast meeting to discuss time-share options and were left alone. This trip, were asked at least a dozen times, from the first person when we arrived at check in, to the towel guy, to the any time we went to the lobby area. It became increasingly annoying. The food at the restaurants that require a reservation are all great. Be sure to make your reservation 5-7 days prior to arrival online if you want to eat at one of them on the day of your arrival. Otherwise, you will be forced to eat at the buffet and God help you on the Asian food night... yuck! The snack bars are great! The drinks are good. My kids enjoyed the non-alcoholic "drinks" menu at the pool bars and the lemonade is fabulous. Bottom line- if you have kids and don't mind the occasional sales pitch this is a good place. I would recommend it to families not honeymooners.

"It was a nice hotel, except the beds run small"
It was really nice , close to the beach, the food was average, the staff members were ok, the beds run small. We were told we got a king size but the king size was more like a queen size maybe a little bit smaller. Overall it was a nice hotel close to everything.

"Timing is everything..."
I am a fan of this hotel. It's beautiful and kept so clean. The manager Dario is kind and efficient. The only down side to my recent trip was the timing. In the summer Vallarta is flooded with families. The noise level of 12 to 18 kids in the small pool was intense. Huge groups arrive and sort of take over. I was alone, looking for a quiet retreat. My bad. But it's not the fault of the hotel. I'll return again when school is in session.

"clean, comfortable hotel with great views"
If you're looking for a 5 star hotel this is not the place for you. This is a cozy and quaint hotel in the middle of the down town Puerto Vallarta. Location is just a block off the malecon. Great food north or south. Beds were comfortable, bathroom was clean. Rooms looked same as pics online. I can say the towels and bed sheets were stained but they were not dirty smelling. Air conditioning worked wonderfully. We were very pleased with our three night stay. It was a little weird that in the stair well they kept extra mattresses, but we figured they set up second beds in single bedroom rooms with these mattresses. We had a double queen room and this is what they did for our room. Re arranged the furniture to fit in two queen beds. It was a tight squeeze but we didn't go to Puerto Vallarta to sit around in our hotel room. It served it's purpose. The pool was clean and refreshing. The restaurant was not good, only ate there once and will review separately. Wifi was iffy... in and out but was free. No complaints overall. Friendly staff and we had nothing stolen.

"Great vacation spot!"
Right on the beach and as we were on the 3rd floor an excellent view of the area. Surprisingly quiet for the location. We had a suite with a kitchen located on the balcony which was perfect. We were able to enjoy the beach and when it got too hot come upstairs and cool off for a while. So nice.

"Wonderful, authentic B&B"
I have been to Puerto Vallarta five or six times and have stayed at a different hotel or resort each time. I can be picky but I have enjoyed them all. Since I was coming alone this time I chose to be centrally located in the Zona Romantica. I consulted read about many places after settling on Casa Fantasia. The price to value ratio could not be higher in my opinion. I have two more nights in my lovely room with good size bathroom, king bed, large private patio and flatscreen TV. What makes Casa Fantasia such a special place though is its host, Impollido. It is truly his pleasure in the most understated way to make his guests happy. If it had not slipped out that he is working by himself right now I would never have guessed. The room has been beautifully cleaned, he is present and attentive for any requests, but never intrusive. Breakfast has been superb. I rarely eat a large meal in the morning but I have not been able to resist the extremely fresh orange juice and fruit and delectable made to order omelets. The location is fabulous..two blocks rom the beach and only a few more to Olas Altas. Restaurants and bars abound just outside the door but it is quiet in the hotel. Wifi was perfect. I tend to enjoy luxury which I won't say this is, but it has a grace and authentic Mexican realness that is worth its weight in gold. It has been a special experience I will not forget.

"Nice simple hotel"
This is an alright hotel. Value for money. It's quite simple. Don't expect luxury like shampoo or a hair dryer. Eventhough they claim to have wifi we couldn't get it working. The elevator doesn't work and it looks like it has not worked for a while and will not be repaired in the foreseeable future. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is good although it doesn't face the ocean. The street has a sense of community with cafés and small restaurants.

"Ocean Front Hotel on the South Coast"
I have been to Puerto Vallarta 12x in 30 years & was a travel agent for 13 years. Positives: Rooms are spacious & very clean. Service is excellent, from front desk to room/pool service! They will welcome you home when you arrive. Location is only 5 min south of town, but you get the beautiful south coast feel. Rooms are very spacious with kitchenettes (big fridge!) & sofa. The ocean waves crash loudly 24/7, even with door closed! Beware of sleeping until late morning...LOL! There is a small balcony, just big enough for 2 chairs. There is a full service store to buy EVERYTHING you need including bottled water for the fridge. There is an active pool for families, volleyball, etc, but also an adult only pool which is more quiet. Negatives: You have to move the 2 chairs in room back/forth between balcony & kitchen table. You have to buy your own coffee for coffee maker. Room service will not bring you silverware & housekeeping does not wash silverware. There is no screen door, so if you want to leave door open put on your mosquito repellent. I got bit many times. There should be a screen! Tropical fruit plate was inconsistent. Sometimes so moist & sweet. Other times dry & tasteless. What bothered me the most was an on/off sewer smell, primarily noticed from adult pool & restaurant (I only ate there once due to this). Overall, the price is excellent for hotel quality! Garza Blanca Hotel is BEST if you can afford. It is my favorite & will only stay there in future.
